    Quiet place and the high tea was good. Service was ok once the bridal party that was at the value was setup we got better service. When we got there only the 1st person who got there was told what was on the high tea menu. Asked one of the server's if she could tell us what was on the tray, but we could tell she had no clue does she explained it was vegan made items. When they were ready for us to leave to turn over the table and there was no one waiting either we got better service. Very surprised there was a 20% gratitude charged for all high tea service and thankful our service explained that to us. I will got back to see how the service for regular menu will be next time.

    We recently visited Plantry Cafe for dinner and came away with mixed feelings. The ambiance was certainly lovely, with warm lighting and cozy decor creating a pleasant atmosphere. However, our overall experience was unfortunately impacted by significant wait times and some major service hiccups. Upon arrival at 6:15 PM, we waited close to an hour for our initial drinks. While the cocktails themselves were tasty, their prices felt quite high, especially considering the lack of detailed descriptions from our waitress. Unfortunately, she even seemed unsure of the ingredients in the featured cocktails for the evening. The restaurant was operating with a set menu on this particular night. While some dishes like the cheese sampler plate and the white & dark chocolate cherry cheesecake were quite good, others were more average. Unfortunately, service attentiveness wasn't consistent throughout the evening. We needed to flag down our waitress on several occasions for additional service, including water refills. During our time there, we witnessed several other parties become visibly frustrated with wait times, with at least three couples ultimately leaving before being seated or served. It's understandable that staffing shortages can occur, and we appreciate the challenges this can present. However, a simple notification upon arrival about potential delays due to staffing issues would have managed expectations and set a more positive tone for the evening. Perhaps, in such situations, offering a slightly reduced menu could also help streamline service and improve efficiency. Overall, while the ambiance at Plantry Cafe was undeniably charming and some dishes were enjoyable, the significant wait times and inconsistent service unfortunately detracted from the overall experience. With better communication and management of wait times, this restaurant could certainly improve its ability to deliver a truly positive dining experience for all guests.

    Restaurant is nice. Food was good. Portions were small. Service was unorganized. Dinner took 3 hours. It was very expensive. Tip is forced and you are charged to use credit cards.

    Lovely decor, friendly staff, great menu. They just need a little work being customer friendly. Charging for still water because it’s filtered? Mandatory 20% tip even for one or two people? Ridiculous. Owner is trying to serve great vegan food but has to understand how to maintain repeat customers without being offensive to folks who dine out many times per week. Keep trying Doc! We need more Vegan restaurants in BTR

    This dining experience was a major disappointment. Dinner menu extremely limited; portions parismonious; food medicore; and cost extremely high for the quality and quanity of food served. More like a scam than culinary experience.
    The Plantry CafeResponded on December 21, 2023
    Hi Thomas, We understand certain diners are accustomed to obesity-driven proportions in Southern Louisiana. Plantry is pleased have caloric intake proportionate to recommended daily allowances. While we would typically appreciate feedback specific to any dishes, your rating of our ambience as a 2/5 is like reporting a Baton Rouge winter as snowing daily- it's so objectively untrue to anyone who is not legally blind that it brings into question the rest of your perspective. Calling your dinner a "scam" is equally far-fetched. Service was also a 1/5? Tantamount to the worst service you've ever experienced? It seems your review is the only scam on the page. We hope ahead of your dinner at another restaurant you read menus for prices & breadth, & look at food photos to ready your expectations.

    We enjoyed our lunch very much. The staff was informative and helpful. They are still working out some timing issues, like appetizers out before main course, but overall a very enjoyable lunch. Everyone on the staff including the owner, made us feel welcome and cared about just by taking time to talk about the menu, the teas, and the decor.
